UNDERWOOD, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say two men have been arrested after a western Iowa chase in which gunshots were fired at a sheriff’s deputy.

The Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office says that around 3:45 a.m. Thursday, one of its deputies tried to stop a car matching the description of a stolen car. The car sped off west on Interstate 80. The car left the interstate at the Underwood exit and was forced into a ditch on a rural road, where it stopped.

The two men fled on foot, but the driver was soon caught. The Sheriff’s Office says the passenger entered a pickup truck but was caught after the pickup got stuck in a cornfield.

Authorities say the deputy was not hit by the gunshots. Court records don’t yet show charges against the men.
